Vice President Kamala Harris will hold a joint discussion on “empowering women and girls” with former President Bill Clinton, who has been accused of sexual misconduct by multiple women.
The Clinton Foundation announced on Tuesday that the discussion would take place as part of a virtual event with college students from around the world on Friday. Besides Harris, other speakers will include Mayor Muriel Bowser, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, her daughter Chelsea and Georgia Democrat Stacey Abrams.
The foundation described the talk as: “A one-on-one conversation with President Clinton and Vice President Kamala Harris on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on women, and empowering women and girls in the U.S. and around the world.”
The Howard University-hosted talk raised questions about past accusations against Clinton, as well as Harris’ previous advocacy surrounding #MeToo and Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. One of those women, Juanita Broaddrick, who accused Clinton of rape, balked at the scheduled event.
